Q: What is your go-to snack on a busy day?
Kailyn: My go to snack depends on if I want salty or sweet! I love chocolate covered almonds, sweet and salty popcorn and fruit, but right now it’s cheese and crackers with cucumber!
Q: What is your favorite dinner to cook at home?
Kailyn: Tacos! All things tacos! I love being able to switch it up with what goes in my tacos,
Mix in some seasonal veggies, new spices and different proteins! I also love cooking salmon a 100 different ways, but my absolute favorite is red curry salmon paired with eggplant, spinach and coconut jasmine rice! I love lots of flavor, yum!
Q: What is a fun fact that people might not know about you?
